How to properly comb hair? Experts give advice

November 5, 2022  12:06

If a bunch of hair remains on your comb, it is not a lack of vitamins or a problem with hormones, but you are simply combing your hair incorrectly, experts claim.

Experts recommend combing your hair every day—even if you have short hair.

In addition, combing massages the scalp and stimulates blood flow for hair growth.

Normally, you can lose 50-60 hairs every day, and combing helps to get rid of it.

For a long time, there was a myth that it is necessary to make at least 100 movements with a comb every day, but the specialists at the American Academy of Dermatology are sure that this is excessive because it can lead to hair loss.

It is enough to carefully comb your hair twice a day.

How to comb damp hair?

  • Immediately after washing, our hair becomes very fragile, and that's why you should comb only with a comb with wide teeth. Start at the ends of the hair, and then gradually go up a few centimeters.
  • Be sure to use a conditioner or smoothing agent.
  • It is better to open the tangled parts with your fingers.
  • Do not rush so as not to damage your hair.

How to comb dry hair?

  • During the day, especially long hair can become tangled, so care must be taken when combing to avoid damaging its structure. Start combing from the middle of the length or from the ends of your hair. Gradually move to the roots—combing them from bottom to top along the entire length.
  • If your hair is very dry, you should consult a trichologist or a dermatologist.
